Welcome to Year 1

(2017-2018)

A place full of opportunities to make happy memories.

Our teachers this year are Mrs Harper and Mrs Sheasby. 

Autumn term will provide a transition period for year 1 children where we aim to bridge the learning between Reception and Year One in order to let the children settle happily in their new year group. Please feel free to make an appointment to talk about your child any time. 
                            

Phonics

We have daily phonics lessons. Our teachers use the Letters and Sounds  phonics resource which aims to build on children's listening and speaking skills, and to prepare children for reading by developing their phonic knowledge. Each year group works through different phases starting at phase 1 in Nursery until the end of Year 2 when children complete phase 6. In Year 1 we are currently working on phase 3. Take a look at the Letters and Sounds website to find out more.....

PE is on a Tuesday afternoon.

Reading Book and Planners: Please make sure reading books and planners are in school every day. you should aim to read with your child at least three times a week.  

Children can bring a bottle of water or sugar free squash to drink during the day.
